I've only noticed this with japanese text, and only on google (though it shows up on various google pages). I think it also has only shown up since I started using XFree86's truetype font renderer (which usually makes japanese web pages look _much_ better). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make sure you're using the environment as described below 2. View the web page give above 3. Look for any characters that look `odd' Actual Results: A few oddly sized characters; I will attach an image file showing the problem Expected Results: No oddly sized characters Debian unstable XFree86 4.2.1 (from the debian package) Using XFree86's builtin font rendering (no font server) Mozilla `Japanese' font selection set to `Take-kochi mincho-jis0208.1990-0' and `Take-kochi gothic-jis0208.1990-0' (for serif/non-serif) @ 12-pixels size Above fonts installed from debian `ttf-kochi-gothic' and `ttf-kochi-mincho' packages (I also seem to have two more font packages with the same names, but with `-naga10' appended; I'm not sure if this makes any difference) Font path modified by adding: FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/kochi" to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
OK, I _won't_ attach an image file showing the problem, since bugzilla's bugs prevent me from doing so... if anyone wants the image, just ask and I'll send it via email.

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?bugid=180667&action=enter should work. If not, email it to me and I'll attach it.

I'm actually seeing (with an Xft build) two sizes of fonts, but on much different characters. Perhaps there's something strange about the font specified by this web page?
seems to be ok on win2k, although i'm not 100% sure as the characters are unfamiliar to me. ->pp
Miles, can you reproduce this problem with a current version of mozilla? It doesn't happen on my system, but I don't think I have XFT set up.
WFM, 2004-08-01-07 trunk Linux (and also WFM in an Xft debug build). Miles, can you still reproduce the problem with Mozilla 1.7 or later?
Marking WFM due to no response from the reporter.
